In the DTM folder, in the folder containing my surface, there is a [surface name].lk# file that gets created whenever I'm in the project. When I close a drawing associated with that project, normally, the .lk# file disappears.
Sometimes, the .lk# remains and when I open the drawing again, it doesn't give me a message telling me that the surface is in use by some other user. So, I keep editing my surface without realizing that the lk# file was never deleted previously and so all my new edits to my surface does not take effect.
My autocad use to automatically delete the .lk# whenever I closed out of a drawing but now it doesn't. Is there some setting that I might have unknowingly changed?
That's what I have been doing now but it just strikes me as odd that I never had to do this all of these years of using LDDT 2007 and now all of a sudden, this problem is happening. I don't understand what would be causing this.
rkmin...sorry...I know this is an old post, but we're currently experiencing the same issue with just one user & it seems to be occuring each & every time they even select a surface or an alignment. It sounded like you were experiencing it more frequently as well...do you recall what the resolution and/or cause was?
